Spaceport Union are heading out on tour this summer from their hometown of Victoria, BC at Mile 0 all the way to the East Coast to promote the release of their latest album, ‘Permanent Frequency’ as well as celebrate Canada’s 150.
SPU play modern, epic, progressive, art rock something in the vein of Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Black Angels, Kate Bush and Radiohead. They consider themselves ‘adventurous rock’. And have played all types of shows, from cafes to house concerts to big festival stages. Here’s a video/track ‘White Noise’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMfkTmhJsJg
The band has toured out to Toronto multiple times, as well as multiple western Canada tours, performed at Canadian Music Week and festivals such as Rifflandia, Diversity, Music on the Meadow, Elevate Festival, Woofstock, BC Days Victoria and many others. They’ve played over 160 shows in the past few years, some alongside acts like Bend Sinister, DOA, Saturn Alien, Moon Tan, Jon & Roy, Good for Grapes, Carmen Townsend, Mindil Beach, Lakes of Canada, Kytami, Isobel Trigger, and Jesse Roper.
plus guests, WHALE & THE WOLF (Edmonton,AB)
About 4 years ago, Vocalist Ryan Maier, guitarist Brandon Yaggey, along with Bassist Lucas Holt, formed Whale in the Wolf in Edmonton Alberta. They assembled their unique Alternative Rock sound through the desire to create something not so obvious. In 2015, the self titled 6 song EP was released. The songs pulled you in emotionally, while packing a heavy punch throughout.
During the first week of it’s release, the EP reached #14 on the iTunes Rock Chart.
Through touring and the release of 3 singles, Whale and the Wolf were played on a number of Radio Stations across Canada (“Do it Loud”, “Domino”, “Shiver”) All songs broke into the Top 40. However, “Domino” smashed through Regina’s airwaves at (ironically) The Wolf FM, where “Domino” would became a TOP 10 played song.
